This is a pretty good quality latex pillow, just a little softer than the reviews would indicate. I have used latex pillows for years and usually they are usually very supportive, and I found that these are not that great for side sleepers, which I happen to be. They would probably be fine if you are a back sleeper. As another reviewer noted, they are a bit squishy. The latex pillows of years past, were more dense and therefore great for side sleepers. These are not uncomfortable, I just find that I have to roll them up get them comfortable enough for me. I discovered by doing some online researth that these pillows are made by Louiville Bedding Company, who do indeed make Beautyrest pillows. Personally, it would have been nice to see a label on this pillow that indicated it was a "Beautyrest" pillow. I am not totally unhappy with them and will keep them for spares, but plan to keep on looking for a latex pillow that actually has some qualitative density to it.
The online description for pillow clearly says "EXTRA FIRM". It is NOWHERE CLOSE TO BEING EXTRA FIRM AND YOU CHARGE ME TO RETURN THIS PRODUCT EVEN THOUGH YOU MISREPRESENTED THE PRODUCT ???!!! If this is the case I will never do business with you or your affiliates again !
We ordered 2 Beautyrest pillows and paid for the more expensive brand name. We recieved the order and it was the cheaper knock off. I called Overstock and the sales rep confirmed by checking the numbers that it was the wrong pillow. So we returned it and had another two sent; and low-and-behold we got the same cheaper one, again. Very disappointing. This is the last time we will use Overstock. The last time I tried Overstock I ordered a ring and got the wrong size 3 times in a row (got a size 5 when I ordered an 8). Something must be wrong with shipping.
This is a terrific pillow - nice and heavy, and good quality for the money This is my first experience with a tatex rubber pillow and I would definitely do it again. Very good support for reading in bed, etc., and very comfortable. I also found it to be quite cool - I was expecting it to get hot but was pleasantly surprised to find it doesn't retain heat. The only reason I didn't give this pillow five stars is that it's a bit high for me - puts my neck at an uncomfortable angle. I chose this pillow based on the many excellent ratings it received and am not sorry I did, but next time I'd buy a softer pillow. This is nice and squishy but very firm, but I think a less firm pillow, less high, would be more comfortable for the way I sleep.
I usually don't write reviews but a pillow is difficult to purchase online. Keep in mind I love Overstock, just not this pillow. The smell mentioned in some reviews does not go away. This pillow is still smelling now over a month. The pillow is more hard than any other latex pillow I have had in the past. I put it in a garbage bag and ran over it a couple of times with the car and it's still too hard. So if you want a pillow that holds its shape and is made well...here is the one. I gave it to my husband and he sleeps like a baby. Go figure.
This is an excellent, quality product. I must sleep on one side, and my pillow is very important to me. I also have a Natura latex pillow. For those who are familiar with these, a comparison would be informative. The Natura latex pillow is lighter in weight, softer in firmness, and less tall. Although I prefer the Natura because I tend to get "ear crush," I recognize the Beatyrest product to be a very high-quality pillow. The Beautyrest latex pillow is very supportive without being overly hard and is an excellent choice for side sleepers who want a firmer, but still soft pillow. The Latex is very hygienic, also.

I have always had latex pillows, grew up on them. Latex doesn't gather dust mites, which is great for allergy suffers. They last an average of 7 to 8 yrs for me then they start to break down and become to flat. These are nice and plump and a little firm, perfect for side sleepers and very comfortable. Overstock has the best price for a really good latex pillow, they are not all made the same.
We purchased our first latex pillow at the mattress store because it felt more comfortable than most of the mattresses we tried. However, it was on sale for $80 (standard) so we only bought one to try out before we bought another. That was 9 months ago and the pillow is still like brand new. We actually had to work out an agreement to take turns using it until I bought this one for my husband's birthday. He loves it! I bought the king size for him for almost half the price of our fist one. These pillows never seem to go flat! They feel comfortable when I sleep on my side or my back. They are also non allergenic so I haven't had any night-time coughing like I used to. I will never go back to a non-latex pillow again!
I ordered these the minute I saw them, 100% latex pillows are not easy to find these days. My last set lasted 10 years, they don't wear out easily. Once you sleep with a latex pillow you may never go back to down again, they always return to their original shape, you'll never have to fluff up a pillow again. Keep these pillows in stock always!
Purchased 2 queen sized Beauty Rest Latex Pillows. They arrived promptly. From what I can tell, they seem to be of a very high quality. They have sufficient weight and are not airy. I bought these to put away for a Christmas present for my son, so they won't be used for a few months yet. Overall, I would say they are a quality product and I would recommend them to anyone looking for foam pillows. Sure beats the regular pillows that flatten out in time.
I love my Beauty Rest pillow. I used to have trouble finding a pillow that was comfortable. I would wake up with a stiff neck and sore neck muscles every morning. I took a chance on the Beauty Rest pillow and have not had any problems with my neck since the first night I used it. I'm sorry I waited so long to purchase this pillow.
I had these pillows for two years and decided to order three more. They are really very heavy and true latex quality. They don't lose their shape and are very comfortable. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was that they are a little bit smaller than standard size but after useage they kind of spread out without losing in quality.
Not sure how the manufacturer determines firmness description but I would rate this as medium. Very disappointed. Purchased my first extra firm latex pillow about 8 years ago from Linen-n-Things. Love that pillow, as do other family members who are always stealing it from my bed, hence the need for another! I guess I will have to continue the search. So, disappointed - did I say I was disappointed?
I bought this pillow for my husband for Christmas because we have had Beautyrest pillows in the past. However, this pillow is nothing like the ones we've had in the past. It is supposed to be extra-firm, but the pillow is way to "cushy". He hates it, and probably will never use it again. I am very disappointed in the product.
